Lightning Express - The Everly Brothers

The lightning express from the depot so grand

 

Had started out on it's way

 

All of the passengers that gathered on board

 

Seemed to be happy and gay

 

But one little boy who sat by himself

 

Was reading a letter he had

 

You could plainly tell by the look on his face

 

That the contents of it made him sad

 

The stern old conductor then started his round

 

Collecting tickets from everyone there

 

And finally reaching the side of the boy

 

He gruffly demanded his fare

 

I have no ticket the boy then replied

 

But I'll pay you back someday

 

Then I'll put you off at the next stop we make

 

But he stopped when he heard the boy say

 

Please mr conductor

 

Don't put me off of this train

 

The best friend I have in this world sir

 

Is waiting for me in pain

 

Expecting to die any moment sir

 

And may not live through the day

 

I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye

 

Before god takes her away

 

A girl sitting near was heard to exclaim

 

If you put him off it's a shame

 

Taking his hand a collection she made

 

The boy's way was paid on the train

 

I'm obliged to you miss for your kindness to me

 

You're welcome she said never fear

 

Each time the conductor would pass through the car

 

The boy's words would ring in his ear

 

Please mr conductor

 

Don't put me off of this train

 

The best friend I have in this world sir

 

Is waiting for me in pain

 

Expecting to die any moment sir

 

And may not live through the day

 

I wanna reach home and kiss mother goodbye

 

Before god takes her away
